About this event

Accompanied by an acclaimed ensemble appearing at the Proms for the first time, frequent guest Christian Tetzlaff revisits the demanding Beethoven concerto.

David Robertson has devised what might seem an unlikely second-half pairing but Schoenberg and Gershwin, both talented painters and tennis aficionados, became firm friends when relocated to Hollywood.

And we begin with Brahms, whom Schoenberg venerated, here at his most impassioned.
